    Yes, a recipe for those delicious burgers made from breadcrumbs, egg & salt-soaked mince should be a sure winner!

    MAKE your own Big Mac at home? We’ll show you how – with relish.
    This week saw the death of US McDonald’s franchise owner Michael Delligatti, aged 98. He created the very first Big Mac back in 1967, along with its famous sauce.
    But despite his creation becoming one of the world’s most popular meals - with an estimated 550million sold every year - Delligatti, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, never received a penny in royalties for his creation.
    Here, we reveal how to make your own Big Mac at home, complete with the special relish.

    Original and our attempt side-by-side...can you tell which is which?

    You'll need

    13

    For your homemade Big Mac, you will need...200g beef mince; 2tbsp olive oil; 2 burger buns; ½ white onion; ¼ lettuce; 2 slices cheddar cheese; 2 dill pickles.
    For the sauce: 300g mayo; 2tsp vinegar; white pepper; 2tsp mustard; 1½tsp garlic powder; ½tsp smoked paprika.

    Method

    1. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl. Place in the fridge.

    Mix it all up for the sauce2. Chop the pickles, lettuce and onion into chunks.

    Chop the veg into chunks3. Season the mince with salt and pepper, then form into two equal-sized balls. Flatten into round patties.

    Roll your mince into patties4. Heat a frying pan and add olive oil. Once it’s sizzling, add the patties and cook for two minutes before flipping to do the other side.

    Just two minutes on each side then flip5. Take the top and bottom halves of one bun, and the bottom of another. Lightly toast all three.

    Superfan Amy puts our burger to the test in McDonaldsHow close does our home-made Mac come to the real thing?
    To find out, we took the meal to the busy McDonald’s in Shadwell, east London, where Big Mac superfan Amy Rose compared it to a store-bought burger, and gave us her verdict.
    Amy, 24, a fundraiser, of Aldgate, east London, said: “The Sun’s creation doesn’t look exactly like the real thing - but I think it actually tastes better!
    “The beef is tastier - perhaps it’s of better quality - and the onion and lettuce seem fresher and crispier.

    Yes. They look nothing like each other. Anyway, who has tastebuds so dead that they think a big mac is worth duplicating?

    Lawd have mercy what is it with you brits & deep frying the foking burger on a plain skillet in its own fat.

    At least spend 20 bucks & buy something like this grill pan:



    Or the ole George Foreman

    The Sun's kitchen hand is not very adept in the kitchen. Also, burger buns a la McD's/Burger King et al are a different bread to baps or ordinary buns.

    Little bit of trivia: McD's fries are seasoned with a mix of 20 parts salt to one part fine ground pepper. I think black pepper, but don't know for sure.

    That Sun one was ok, but could do with a better hand-crafted patty (thinner, wider and neater), proper burger bun, and as mentioned, the cheese should be melted. I'd use room temp cheese slice and place it on the patty as soon as it is flipped.
    Also, I think the lettuce should be coarsely shredded. And, I think the gherkins should be pickled sliced, not pickled then sliced.
    If you want to emulate McD, that is.

    If you want to improve on it: Use real cheese not processed cheddar, in which case you may need to pop it under the grill after removing the cooked, cheese-loaded patty from the pan, just to get that extra bit of melt going on. Half melted cheese is not good.

    If you want to emulate McD's you wouldn't use gherkins

    They taste weird.

    Should be true sour pickles.

    And throw that colemans mustard in the trash. Nasty.

    And the bread has to be fresh. Looks to me like they *gasp* froze the bread then toasted it.

    and egg.
    And I don't think the Sun used mustard, per se, but used mustard in formulating the sauce.

    But he's right. Fresh bread.
    I'm not going to argue the pickles as I don't know, but gherkins, or sweet pickles are ok. I suspect the sour ones would be better.

    ...or, one could buy a Big Mac and use one's kitchen for more exciting culinary adventures...

    Best burger yet in BKK for me has been Bad Burger. Simple but so much flavor in the meat, crisp veggies and a side of Belgian fries.

    I did.

    And the question was asked in the context of someone trying to exactly replicate a Big Mac. This would not be done if you made the patty tastier, or the lettuce and onion crispier.

    No need to thank me.
